El texto que acompaña la imagen:

‘The first night we cleaned some beds in the tuberculosis ward and slept there. I thought: ‘it just for a couple of nights, while the government settles our situation.’ It’s been ten years. Now I live in the Mental Health Pavilion. The Hospital is falling down to ruins. So is my life.’
Edelmira told me this the first day I met her. It’s the story of over seventy families that lost their homes for lack of payment during their last months of service. They were forced to remake their homes in the Hospital, just ten blocks away from Plaza de Bolívar.

¡Me va a tocar ir a California! ¿Sioqué?

Me emociona porque es con mi trabajo del San Juan, que considero es mi primer proyecto personal.
